Ski Resorts Work to Stay Open as COVID Cases Snowball
The day after Thanksgiving, Dr. Jana Eller and Dr. Shiraz Naqvi were seated beside an outdoor fire pit at the base of Telluride Ski Resort, taking a short break from skiing.
The two physicians from Houston had driven more than 18 hours to get here for the holiday weekend, and they were staying (and preparing meals) in a rented home. They traveled with another couple and their kids, colleagues they’ve been “bubbling” within Houston.
“We got a COVID test prior to leaving and will get another when we return,” Naqvi said.
The skiing itself doesn’t feel much different during the pandemic, Eller said, but “the après ski scene is just gone.”
